Manolo Blahnik 2009-2010

Since Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, the man has become the modern day Cinderella shoe-maker.

Mr Blahnik is strictly anti-platform (yes I know he used to do the occasional platform in the 80s and 90s) and I admire how he can keep up his esthetic values in a time where platform-aholics demand for insanely high heels. “Yes, yes, yes. No more platforms, please. I’m so glad!” as said by the man himself and I agree with him that platforms, especially if they’re more than 1 inch, completely distort the shape of one’s feet, not to mention that they’re extremely clunky and your feet look HUGE! Not to mention that I have a very tradition Chinese perspective that women’s feet should be small and dainty.

I do have to agree that having a small platform less than 1 inch is much more comfortable on your feet and helps to absorb all the shock. So as with everything, there are pros and cons to platforms.

MB FW09 BB in Purple Satin and Black Lace Overlay

– Neiman Marcus exclusive
– Purchased in 2009
– They’re incredibly beautiful, but I’ve never worn them yet… Maybe they’ll be my “something blue” in the future…

 

 

MB Campari in Patent Nude

– Purchased in 2010
– Very comfy, but after a year of only wearing them maybe 15 times to work, the leather is starting to crease really badly near the front toes… I think it has to do more with the very pointy style rather than the quality because almost all other Camparis I’ve seen have the same problem.
